Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this uncommon Blue and White Country Spongeware Pitcher.
This shape and form is uncommon. I have only seen about 10 of these and 8 of them came from an old log cabin home I picked in Western Kentucky about 10 years ago. The owner said she picked them up at Nashville fleamarkets in the 1970's.
Dating around 1890, this beauty is Hand-Turned with Ball Form, Pouty-Lipped Spout, Handle Close to the Body (an indicator of age), and Pawprint Sponging in Dark Cobalt Blue. 5 1/2" tall.
Excellent Condition. A 1/4" flat flake on the top of the rim on the right side toward the handle, and some glaze wear on the top of the spout on the left side. That's it! No base chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
I have kept all the ones I have found, and am sellilng this one from my private collection because I have a nearly identical one.
